French journalist sees 'revolution' in Vatican's new policy for Caritas

Catholic World News - May 27, 2011

The Vatican’s assertion of control over the policies of Caritas International should be recognized as a “palace revolution,” writes Jean-Marie Guénois of Le Figaro. By insisting that the agency must preserve a distinct Catholic identity, he observes approvingly, Pope Benedict has regained control of “an entire sector of the activity of the Catholic Church.”

    This is very good news! And great comfort to the laity to see the successor of St. Peter in charge of the church. Please pray for our Holy father to bring back the full teachings of our Lord and our true catholic identity!
